"So that's how we live our lives. No matter how deep and fatal the loss, no matter how important the thing that's stolen from us - that's snatched right out of our hands - even if we are left completely changed people with only the outer layer of skin from before, we continue to play out our lives this way, in silence. We draw ever nearer to our allotted span of time, bidding it farewell as it trails off behind...

|The Spectral Eye - Ghosts Of The City [rain015]|
The author's note: The "Spectral views" are an idea born, I think, from the sometimes sad, sometimes violent city atmosphere I love to describe and experience. With my songs I tell about the people who no-one normally sees: the forgotten, the outcast, the silenced ones: their feeling, their dreams and memories, their fears and hopes. Their eyes and souls are full of stories and feeling no-one seems to notice, or care for: they are like ghosts, lost into the darkness and light of the city...

Try to imagine a clear sky. Only blueness over your head. Nothing more. However there is a sun there. Blindingly noticable. You hear no sound. No sound except the music of the open sky. You sit in your window. Listening to bamboo windchimes. You listen to the wind. Clouds give you harmonies. This is timeless. You listen until you sleep. You wake up to listen more. That open sky. It is fascinating.

About "Night Song": "Night Song" was produced in 2007. At the night, there are various moments. I feel various things at the night. I expressed them with a sound.

She was ill. Laying in her bed. Her beloved white roses weren't there to help. Without roses the solitude is much greater. The day was fourteenth and the month was second. She was waiting for a long time. Each minute was a long time. Without roses even seconds were called long. She did not know what to await for. Then the roses came. Enclosed within a flat surface, shattered and streamed into barely visible dots...

The remaining ninety-nine percent is just living in waiting. I wait in momentary expectation, feeling as though my breasts are being crushed, for the sound in the corridor of the footsteps of happiness. Empty. Oh, life is too painful, the reality that confirms the universal belief that it is best not to be born." -- "The Setting Sun" by Osamu Daz...

What we have here is not just ordinary music. These sounds reach directly to meanings. The meaning here is the unspeakable tension present everywhere. The tensions of souls wandering around us. The way Kenneth Kirschner plays his music seems like this tension, after reaching it's limit, has finally broken into sound. One could hear beings from the border of silence and music. And so these are compositions about beings and tensions...

This album starts the series of five best works by Martin Dot.

Such repeated event is a constant. But it's also variable, as there is no possibility of such two identical events. That's what this album tries to show...
